Hooray For Boobies!

Every now and then, I like to think about something positive about myself or my body, which, as we all know, is sometimes not so easy for a fat girl to do. And, every time I feel down in the gutter and need a pick me up, I think about how my being fat has contributed to the best assets money could buy if I had to, but since I am fat, I don't...ha ha ha.

I have fuckin' AWESOME tits. They're amazing.

I couldn't imagine life with my girls. It's true that sometimes they restrict me from wearing button down shirts, but hey, the trade is certainly worth it. My boobs give me the confidence that sometimes I lack because of my size. They lead, and I follow. They give me an awesome shape and something to be proud of.

I'm often asked if my boobs are real. I think this is mainly due to their perfect round shape I can thank to the little extra fat stuffed into each of them.

If there is anything I have learned from being friends with skinny girls it's this: They wished they had big tits too. This, my fellow fat women, is what often gives us the upper hand when dealing with no very nice skinny women. (For you nice skinny women out there, I'm not talking about you).

Driving down the street one day with my rail thin, often rude about weight friend, we got on the topic of, of all things, penis size. To me, it doesn't matter, to her, she likes a larger penis (WOW she actually likes something larger!). She then went on to say that: "It's not like boobs where men don't care about the size. A man isn't going to pick you over me because you have big boobs. Boobs are boobs. " Uh, actually, my little friend, yeah, guys like big boobs* any way you slice it...it's actually why there's such a huge demand for breast augmentations...read the statistics little lady.

I'm often really shy to show off my goods. Lindsey, another girl with some awesome knockers, isn't so afraid. I often wonder that if I wasn't so big and I still had big boobs, would I show them off? I'm not sure. Maybe I like to keep them to myself and share them with a chosen few. They're my best diversion from men looking at my faults also, because I can distract them with my boobs...and then my mind of course!

So, in conclusion, I'm going to take a minute to 1. Thank my genetics and 2. Thank my fat (a rarity for me) for giving me something to hold my head up high to.

Yay for big, fat boobs!!!!

*I'm sure there are men that like small breasts, I'm not denying this...I'm going on the majority though.

Perhaps your skinny rude friend is getting defensive (and delusional) because unlike penis size, which guys generally don't find out about each other (there are some individuals who show each other theirs and are still in fact into women, I'm sure, but that doesn't mean I think such behavior is normal) and can always privately assume they have the upper hand in, breast size is kind of hard to hide. One guy can always believe he's "better endowed" that the guy next to him, and no evidence to the contrary is generally displayed; on the other hand, its pretty hard for one girl to deny that another girl's breasts are bigger than theirs. So, since one can't delude oneself about size, one instead has to delude oneself that size doesn't matter...

Laura said...

When I was around 12 years old, I was mildly worried that I would end up not-so-well endowed in that area. Now I'm more concerned about gravity. Even at my lightest weight, I've never been smaller than a D. Be careful what you wish for, I guess.

Most of the time I feel like I've got it goin' on in the cleavage area, except for the last time I was in Las Vegas. I've never seen so many ridiculous, obviously fake boob jobs in one place, even in LA. I'm a DD girl and I actually felt SMALL. WTF?!

Rayna said...

Good for you girl! you show your boobs off...I'm so glad that you pointed out the positive and that fat girls with big boobs rock. I'm glad I'm not a carpenter's dream!

emily pound said...

Yay for boobs! I can't imagine what life would have been, and be like, without my girls. They are a vital part of me.

I'm a fat girl who doesn't have big boobs to go along with my big butt and stomach. I walk to work looking something like an unfortunate dweedle dee or dweedle dum, scarily disproportioned.

I've actually considered breast augmentation so my breasts could match up with the rest of my body. Is it wrong to want a boob job so my boobs with match my big butt?

Anonymous said...

No, it's not wrong and I bet you'll look amazing.

haxabubbla said...

Me too, I'm a fat girl with small boobs. And It's one of the things in my body that makes me happy because it makes me look not so fat. I just don't have the height to look good with big boobs. People always assume I'm a lot lighter. So yay for small boobs too.

Jill said...

"It's not like boobs where men don't care about the size. Boobs are boobs" may be the single most stupid and clueless statement I have ever heard about any body part. I second the "getting defensive" explanation.
I have DDs, and not only I admire them daily.
(But I know two guys who don't like anything above a B cup.)

hellcat said...

Jill--those two guys--they're lying! ;)

~loveme~ said...

Yeah dude... i have never met a guy who didnt love big boobs... they probably dont know cup sizes or something!!

Icciv said...

Yeah I love having big boobs, it something about myself I always love.

By the way, I think this blog is really great! Keep up the good work!

erica said...

There was a line in that movie "Beautiful Girls" (from a gazillion years ago), where Rosie is explaining why big girls got the good boobs naturally:

"Our god is a fair god."

Amen.

floradoragirl37 said...

Hey girls
I have small-ish boobs, but I've got a butt that rocks! My bf is always walking behind me because he likes to watch it move. Most of my weight is in my butt, and Im smaller up top, but it seems to work. lol!
Who says fat girls aren't hot? We've got the voluptuous curves that guys love

floradoragirl37 said...

You may also want to tell your skinny fat hating friend that men find insecurity boring and unattractive.

Miche said...

I have large boobs, and I really dislike them. Honestly, it is difficult for me being a short girl of size with big knockers, because I can't find tops that fit and don't look like I'm busting out all over. Plus, it seems like A cups are in again. I hate not being able to shop at La Coquette, La Perla, hell, even Victoria's Secret is out of my size most ot the time. So while big boobs are great in theory, for me, at least, they seem like more trouble than they're worth.

Kunoichi said...

There's big, and then there's Big! LOL

I am a woman of generous proportions. I'm also fortunate to have a husband who enjoys the extra curves I've developed over 18 years of marriage. I used to be especially generous on the top half. At my largest, while bf'ing my second baby, I was a II/J. What size I managed to get down to, I'm not entirely sure, but I figure I was either a G or an H. I just stuffed myself into a DDD, because I couldn't find anything bigger at the time. It was about 1 1/2 years ago that my upper back and neck finally gave out. I had to go on medical leave from my job while awaiting breast reduction surgery because of the pain, and I was actually rushed to the top of the waiting list for medicare covered surgery. The surgeon tried to convince me to go down to a C, saying it would be "more proportionate to my size," but I insisted on going down to a B. They removed 4 pounds of tissue from each breast (no liposuction). After the surgery, I almost regret not having it done the first time a doctor recommended me for it 5 years before! Physically, I can't believe how much of a possitive difference it made. I can actually sleep on my back again, without my breasts either moving up towards my neck and restricting my breathing, or off to the sides and getting stuck in my arm pits. I can lie on my side and cuddle my dh at night without having to first make sure my lower breast is out of the way so he doesn't accidentally lie on it. I can even buy tops that are the same size as my bottoms again, instead of having to go another size up. Best of all, no more back and neck pain!!

So now I'm a woman of generous proportions - in a B cup. My 13 yr old daughter is that size, as I was at her age, and she's already ok with the idea that someday, she might need to have a reduction, too. And would you believe I still can't find a decent bra? The first time I went to a plus size store, planning to get a sexy bra instead of the body armour I used to wear, I discovered that they *start* at a C cup. Years before, I'd gone to the same franchise and couldn't find anything above a DD, but lots of A and B's!!!

Ah, who cares. I've still got curves that kick - and now I can even go braless if I want! Dh sure isn't complaining, either. ;-)

Anonymous said...

I'm not really so fat anymore, but even at my fattest - 260 I was never really more than a B which is hard b/c Victoria Secret doesn't make most bras in a 38 B and Lane Bryant doesn't start their 38 until C. It's a conundrum. I've learned to love padding to make me look more proportioned.

I've always said it's unfair that I'm the fat sister with the small boobs and my sister is the thin one with big boobs - I will never understand how that worked out. Once I was telling my sis how I found a dress I loved but it was too big in the chest and she looked at me and went nothing is ever too big in the chest, it doesn't exist - she had never had such an experience. I was like, welcome to my world. I had to give up on Lane Bryant top ages ago b/c everything was cut for such bigger breasted women than me and my little ol b's.

Having said that, I see what my friend s go through and while I'd love to be a full C, I'd keep my B's over their DD's and their problems with them any day of the week.

Would you guys please post a pic or two of your tits? Thanks.

Why must we call them "boobs" and "tits"?

I agree with whoever said the comment about calling breasts boobs and tits. Or knockers.

About guys liking small breasts.. I'm a girl so I don't know first hand, but a male friend of mine thinks anything more than a handful is a waste. I think guys like breasts, period.

Technicolour Nightmare said...

I always found my big breasts attracted the wrong men. They were more interested in them than anything else.
I'm starting to wonder why you are friends with the skinny fat hating girl who seems to be putting you down at every stop- though not directly. Its like she thinks you're better than her so she has to berate you.
Sorry.
Cheers.

It's obviously a joke...the real question is, does anyone have a sense of humour anymore in this society.

Stephanie said...

I agree with Beth, jeeze, why do people take stuff so damn seriously???

And about your skinny friend making that comment, I have honestly never heard any girl make a comment like she did. That's just hilarious!!! Mine aren't big, they're C's, but my skinny skinny friend always says she's jealous of my boobs/tits/knockers (that's for you Annonymous 3:27pm, haha). I don't get it, the whole boob thing, but I am not complaining!!!

GoBetty said...

I call them tits and boobs and whatever else, for instance gazongas. This is not a joke. I am for reals. Please post a pic.

Am I guy who loves a woman with some flesh on her and some curves. I will say, though, that boobs are judged not only by size but also by firmness and shape. I dated a girl in college with large C/small D boobies, but they were soft and floppy. Also -- the nipple is crucial. A bad nipple can ruin a good boobie.

Marly said...

*Defensive Face* At 5"3 and 135 pounds, I'm clinging to my B cup. My greatest aspiration is if I sleep at a wierd angle every night my jelly belly will pour itself into my chest and I will be a C.

We can all dream, all right?

Anonymous said...

I have never been that critical about some of the men I have been with (pardon the language) I have never said about a man (a bad testicle ruins a good penis)
lol!
It's just silly to be so technical over stuff like that.
If a man would not like my breasts, I can honestly say he's too shallow for me and he can find someone else.

BJ said...

Am I the only one here who suspects that men who are interested only in women with little in the way of breasts are possibly gay?

Ideally I would be size 10 with D cups (but when I was that size I had only an A cup).

I wonder if it was really the size of the breasts which caused the pain - or if the pain was caused by the constrictive bras?

Does anyone know of a bra which is actually comfortable, while also being uplifting (the over 30s who've been pregnant & have breastfed for a long time will relate), & giving a rounded, not pointy, shape, without costing more than, say, $35? Don't recommend an underwire, they poke me in the upper arms when I'm driving.

greenlacewing said...

I am whole-heartedly in favor of talking about breasts as much as possible. And calling them whatever you like. Good work!

Anonymous said...

Here's something that sucks, though... I'm a large gal and I don't have big boobs, just B cups. The part that sucks is not having B cups -- it's that the starting cup size at almost all 14+ stores is C, and often I can't even find that. The store I frequent the most starts most bras off at D. And because my circumference is too large, I can't buy a B cup at a normal store like Sears, unless I strap together like 25 extenders! I find it extremely frustrating that most clothing designers assume that all fat women have big racks because it leaves me with clothing tight at the hips and pouchy like a potato sack at the chest. Big bummer.

Sarah said...

Being a girl, I can admire a nice set of big boobs just as well as a guy can, but all big boobs aren't great. When I weighed 270, I was a 44DD, I had huge knockers. The problem was, they sagged. The nipples pointed to the ground. I hated them. I lost weight, got a breast lift and now they are big boobs that are insanely awesome.

It's sad because I despise shallow people, yet I'm one myself. I'm a sheep brainwashed by society.

I've been well endowed since the age of 11. Always thought of it as a curse though. And I was not too keen on surgery, so I figured I just had to live with em. As of 2 months ago, I work a 40DDD, then I found this website:

www/bravissimo.com

Yes, it's in England (and I'm not) but they really know there stuff over there (some of the bras go up to an HH cup). I talked with someone who fitted me to be a 36GG. I ordered one bra with the assurance that I could return it for another size or a full refund. Well, it fit like a dream. A well fitting bra really makes all the difference. No more back pain and no more cavernous red dents in my shoulders from the straps. When a bra really fits it doesn't need to dig into the shoulders. Best part though, I look like I've lost about 15 lbs. Everyone has told me I look like I lost weight but I havene't lost a pound. What the wonders of a good bra can do! Now if only they offered those sizes in America. What's wrong with us with all the silicone walking around out there????

BTW, I don't consider myself skinny. I'm 5' and 140 lbs. But even if I lost 40 lbs. the knockers would still be disproportionately huge.

If you can possibly afford it, it would be worth trying one of their bras. One of their bras is worth far more than the pile of money I spent on 40DD's and DDD's that never supported me.

Enough said.

Thanks Carmindy! I checked out that site, and it looks great!
I'm glad most of you girls love your breasts, it's good to hear! Unfortunately, every time I happen to notice mine, it makes me shudder.

M said...

For my fellow fat B-cuppers out there, Lane Bryant has bras in 40 and 42 B (I assume they go up higher than that too, but I've never needed more than a 42).

I've also found that, if you can deal with the discomfort, corsets look really good on a chubby girl because a lot of your weight does look like it's shifted to the chest. If it weren't for my having some limits to my tolerance for pain (and fear of internal ogran damage...) I'd wear one all the time!

For the people asking about better bras in a better size range, I've just discovered biggerbras.com, with bras ranging from A cups right on up to infinity and band sizes likewise. Also, the prices range from on-sale fourteen dollars right up to...well, REALLY infinity. Sometime I'd like to try a hundred-dollar bra, but I'm still knocked over dead by fifty-dollar bras (my biggest splurge to date.)

For those on the ever-fascinating topic of those things on our chests, there's a chapter in Tales from the Scale that says it all: Dude, Where're My Boobs? I've lost about twenty pounds over the past six months (before you scold, let me add that it was a heroic effort to address rising cholesterol--vanity wasn't a good enough reason), and while I've wanted smaller hood ornaments for a long time, and seriously considered reduction, I didn't realize that when they shrank they'd get so...floppy. I'm getting the collarbones, but I've had to trade in some of the rack to do it. I'm lucky in that DH likes hood ornaments of all kind and has never been heard to say an unkind word about any breast anywhere, but it's definitely disconcerting. If I have a kid and these things stretch down to my knees, I think I'll seriously consider getting some body work done...and I'm a complete Puritan about cosmetic surgery, too, and a complete chicken.

Ah, body issues...what hypocrites and contradictions they make of us all. Whomever said she was a brainwashed sheep, up above? That's me too. That's a LOT of us. You can only do the best you can.

I was a D, lost weight and went down to a C, and am now back up in weight and cup size. I really mourned losing the D so it's the one upside of my gaining weight back. And they do make me feel sexy. :)

PastaQueen said...

Thanks for that link to http://www.biggerbras.com/, Anonymous! I've had the hardest time finding a 42A bra. JustMySize.com started selling a couple styles back in the fall, but the site you mentioned has a lot more variety.

Jan said...

I was always an almost B cup, even at 230lb. Crap. I wish I had bigger ones to match my hips/butt. I'll get fakies when I can afford them.

K said...

I've never been able to understand why anyone would want bigger breasts, either. Mine are a pain. They're 36E or F, have to be firmly supported at all times or they hurt, and it is incredibly difficult to find bras that fit and don't stretch out of shape after a couple of wearings. (I'm not even going to talk about trying to find pretty pyjama tops that don't look totally ridiculous.)

I could never buy from Bravissima because I need to try them on first, but I've recently found Triumph to be pretty good. They're actually comfortable and don't hurt my shoulders!

Starla Spaulding said...

Last year I wanted to buy some new bras. I knew I had put on weight so I was remeasured by the saleslady. After she told me my new number and cup size the only thing that kept running through my mind was,"Holy crap I have porn size boobs.".

Buffpuff said...

I'm fond of my broad swimmer's shoulders and womanly 38FFs – being short-ish and very round in the middle, I'd look disproportionate without them. As it is they lend me an imposing physical presence despite my 5' 3" frame, (an advantage, I find, when negotiating a rude, fat-phobic world); and I think they're sexy.

Being a Brit, I'm fortunate to have a Bravissimo shop twenty minutes walk from where I live. However, it really pisses me off that their suppliers don't make matching panties any bigger than a UK size 16-18. (I'm a 22). So, although I can now get really pretty colourful bras, I'm forced to pace the aisles of Marks and Spencer (which is where ALL British women buy their knickers) in search of something that vaguely matches and never entirely does. Which considering those of us with big charlies have to pay twice – or even three times – as much for our pretty bras in the first place, pisses me off even more.

While I'd never knock someone in constant physical pain for having a breast reduction, as an intermittent sufferer, I'd still never consider it myself. I once found myself sharing a changing room in a plus-sized boutique with a woman who'd had a reduction. She remarked we were wearing almost identical underwear otherwise I wouldn't really have been clocking her body in the first place. Having had my attention drawn to it, however, I found myself rivetted by the sight of the most incongruous pair of breasts I've ever seen in my life. A devoted, life-long dieter, she'd apparently lost a ton of weight and persuaded her husband to buy the wretched things for her as a fortieth birthday present. Then, surprise surprise, she'd put all the weight back on again. So there she was, with a fat fifty-year-old's body, with some thirteen year old's perky little chest grafted onto the front of it. I thought she looked absolutely mental but she was pleased as punch with them. Takes all sorts I guess. Much as getting older sucks, I'd rather hang onto my assets, gravitationally-challenged or not.

Anonymous said...

Buffpuff, I'm jealous. A Bravissimo only 20 mins away! Then again, I'd be wayyyy too in debt. So maybe it's a good thing.

I agree with keeping things as they are. Much as I dislike the downward shift I just prefer the natural look to the nipped, tucked and sewn look of a ragdoll. But I can't fault those in real physical pain. Lucky for me the pains I had were not that great and have all but gone since wearing the correct bra size.

My biggest complaint - stretch marks!!! Oh how I hate those. They are on the tops of my boobs and have been there since the age of 12. I have showing those more than I do the big boobs.

Ugh. I had a breast reduction at 20 because I was 105 pounds and a 32 DDD cup. Now that it's 10 years and 10 pounds more I'm a 34 F or G.

I HATE my boobs. I hide them the best I can with my reduction bras. They hurt, are sweaty in the summer, make me a size 12 on top and 5 on the bottom, look stupid, ugh ugh ugh.

I would do anything to get rid of these monsters. Props to all of you who like em though.

Buffpuff said...

Anonymous, I'm truly sorry you hate your boobs so much! It really saddens me when women hate their bodies particularly in view of the fact that, from what you've said, you've a body Pamela Anderson had to pay good money for. Can't you just - I dunno...work with 'em a little instead of calling them horrible names?

A lot of women hate their generous gazongas because they feel they ruin the line of their clothes. Rather than flatten them with a minimiser, (hmmm, a bolster down the front of your blouse - never a good look in my view – and probably the reason why your breasts hurt to boot), maybe you too should have a look at the Bravissimo website? They have a range of groovy fitted shirts and self supporting, yet deceptively skimpy, summer tops specially-cut for slender girls with ample bosoms.

And, no. I don't work for them, honest. (If I did, they'd be leaning on their suppliers to make size 22 knickers, believe me). Just hate to see you and your girls at loggerheads.

Tim PFB said...

Congrats on the big tits. :) lol I'm a fan of handful or smaller myself. You're very funny. Treat those boobies right! ;)

lala said...

I have huge boobs, and I hate mine as well. My dh claims to love them, just one good squeeze turns him on every time, but I just don't get it. They are grossly fat, hang half way to my knees, and to top it all, I also have inverted nipples! I wear a 52G, and I'm constantly uncomfortable, because my bra rides up in the back, and the straps dig into my shoulders. How can any of this be considered attractive? I would honestly like to know.

Kate said...

I have a love/hate relationship with my breasts. I love that I have great cleavage, but I hate that my breasts point at my toes. At a 47 C+/D-, finding a bra that truly fits is virtually impossible.

Not to change the subject, but one thing I love about being fat is that it fills wrinkles. I recently had a doorman check my id and do a slapstick doubletake when he saw my age. People are generally shocked when they hear that I am 45.

BuffPuff,

I read the entire "craigslist experiment" thread yesterday. I'm not a lesbian, but I think that I'm in love with you anyway. :D

Finding a well-fitting bra isn't the only problem I've encountered. Being practically ridiculously proportioned on top (44-32), and having most of my short-to-begin-with height made up by my legs, I simply can not buy shirts. If I go for a bigger size (small is big to me), the shirt'll fit too loosely around my middle, but if I go for a smaller one my breats just look.. stupid. I usually end up buying men's shirts in junior's small and tieing up all the extra material around my waste. Which, as well, looks stupid. I'm also kind of young, so I can't be purchasing well tailored clothing and wearing them to schol and all of that. Sigh...

Anyone know where I can buy a normal shirt?

I don't even have a good word to describe how happy this article made me. Because my boobs have always been my pride and joy. :D but my really really super-skinny friends always have some jealous snide comment about how I only have great boobs because I'm fat and they're really *too* big and one day they're gonna look awful. But at least now I feel like boobie pride is universal. The way I worded that really made no sense, but I think you get it.
